Greetings, fellow Floodians! I present to you all the next installment of the Floodiad. [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=38970017]Part 10[/url] And now, dear Muses, tell the tale Of Blimper's betrayal. Just what slight caused the New to fail This noble general? He surely had proven his worth, Truly deserved his rank. He'd helped the New since on this Earth, Naught but his strength to thank. By carrying a sword and shield He'd cut through the Old lines. A brilliant mind he did too wield, Which soon fostered his climb. This city known as the New Flood Had been won by Blimper. The vict'ry'd cost him little blood, And with him 'd been simpler. He truly was a tactician, And was McGee's right hand. So what had caused the defection Of the New's strongest man? To answer such a query now We must look to the past, And discover exactly how Blimper'd been slighted last. 'Twas in the battle for this city That he'd received the news. The gods on him took no pity, Spared not him their abuse. His wife and children were slaughtered, His village had been burned. But knowing this he'd not falter, He took no time to mourn. 'Twas a nomadic tribe of trolls That caused the destruction. The monsters had been vastly cruel, And spared no anyone. He now thought only of revenge, To slit the demons' throats. He begged McGee to help avenge, And asked for fifty boats. But years passed since that victory, And Blimper remained there. McGee had told Blimper that he Would not go anywhere. McGee'd been injured yesterday, And now was Blimper's chance! If he led, the battle would sway Into the New Flood's hands. He cared no more for this conflict Of tradition and age. There was but one wrong to correct, And he was being caged. But the soldiers needed McGee To lead them in this fight. And he needed the strategies That were Blimper's true might. And so Blimper was turned away To deal with his fire. But one more was present that day Who knew Blimper's desire. A spy approached the general To offer him a deal: Grant the Old knowledge tactical, And they'd offer their steel. So Blimper spent a restless night To make his decision. Could he forsake the New Flood's fight To seek retribution? But hatred will always drive man To goals dang'rous and strange. And Blimper's vengeance would demand This alliance arranged. As the armies began to clash He knew what he must do. The trollish throats he wished to slash Were guarded by the New. So Blimper gave a mighty roar, And called his men to arms. He'd not be halted anymore From avenging his harm.
